We're recruiting for #FanniesArmy...and we need YOU
Are you ready to join #FanniesArmy?
October 6 would have been Civil Rights hero Fannie Lou Hamer’s 100th birthday and GirlTrek, the largest national public health nonprofit and movement for Black women and girls, is celebrating her legacy by hosting 100 local walks.
"In the iconic words of Fannie Lou Hamer, we are sick and tired of being sick and tired. She died too soon putting her body on the line for our freedom and we want to celebrate her life in a big way. In her honor, we are going to raise an army of sisters, #FanniesArmy, who will lead 100 walks across America," said GirlTrek cofounder T. Morgan Dixon.
To participate in #FanniesArmy, drop everything and walk with us for 100 minutes on October 6th at 6pm! Our trek will begin and end at the Roxbury YMCA. Please be sure to dress in layers, wear your favorite walking sneakers and rock your GirlTrek blue as we embark on a 6-mile journey through our community to commemorate Fannie Lou Hamer.
Looking forward to trekking with YOU!
